    Pros

    Great place when you are fresh out of college.

    People you work closely with are pretty good

    Cons

    No room to grow in the company. Opportunities to flourish are low and ideas go unheard.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those from within and more employees with stay. Promotions many times come with no compensation, which makes this worse

    Pros

    There are a decent amount of really good people, but they all pretty much feel the same!

    Cons

    Crazy employee turnover, lack of organization in departments, certain people in un-deserving positions, absolutely no raises or compensation after years of dedication

    Advice to Management

    Get it together! Take care of the people who deserve it while building the other departments before all of the good people at this company are gone.


  11. I have been working at Westwood One

    Pros

    The Dallas office is great - intelligent, productive, quality - unfortunately many people and entire departments are being laid off and the work is shifting to the under qualified teams in NY. NY can't hold a candle to the Dallas crew. the company may be saving $$, but the quality is going out the window

    Cons

    since the merger, everything - morale is at an all time low. the only thing left are the great folks still here and most of them are looking elsewhere

    Advice to Management

    no point, they won't listen
